Need a project to build with all those offcuts? After building a large project out of cedar I had a lot of scrap left and here is what I built.

It’s made completely out of cedar (other than the 3/4” ply backerboard) and I finished it with a combination of spirits, BLO, and spar urethane.

If you want to see some tips on aligning the pieces and picking the right dimensions to make it easy they you can check out the full tutorial on blog at:

Hope this gives you some inspiration for a piece for your house!

I like this, a lot. Simple but very effective. I will put one of these on my bucket list, because I certainly have an abundance of scraps….................Jack

What you need more of wood art – I like it very much. Some good idea for my scraps. I could make ten of them, how much sraps I collected already.

Brad, this is great. Thanks for being awesome. I am working on one with end-grain beetle-kill wood.
